DON'T Buy OCZ 120GB SATA II SSD with 64Gb die

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
A word of caution:

I just returned my OCZ 120GB SATA II SSD and got the SATA III version. You can read all about the SATA II version in OCZ site.

In a nut shell, they used a larger die (64Gb) to make the SSD cheaper and because of that they throttled the speed by half (but not tellign the customer). They are offering a replacement with a 32Gb die which are more expensive but you have to send the drive to Taiwan!

So basically you won't get what you thought you paid for!

The Vertex 3 28nm NAND issue has been known for quite some time now.
